Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi has issued warning to his side’s opponents after Nigeria’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, win over Ivory Coast on Thursday.

Iwobi said the Super Eagles are afraid of no team currently participating at the ongoing AFCON.

Recall that William Troost-Ekong’s penalty gave Jose Peseiro’s men the victory against the host at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara in Abidjan.

Speaking to reporters in the mixed zone after the game, Iwobi said: “The formation was different.

“We defended as a team, from Victor to the goalkeeper, everyone defended well so I feel like that formation change helped us.

“We have to concentrate on the next game, we take it game by game but we have the belief that we can do so, we have to wait and see.

“We are afraid of no one but we treat every team with respect.”

Nigeria will face Guinea-Bissau in their final Group A tie on Monday.
